    Default Re: Filled tires or wheel weights?

    I had mine filled becuase it was a lot cheaper and gets the weight lower. Downside is if you have to remove or repair the tire or if you need to take the weight off for some reason.

    According to this, -20 WWF has a specific gravity of 0.908 or only 90% as dense as straight water. That makes sense as methanol is less dense than water and it is about 30% methanol.

    I actually took a case, 6 jugs, and weighed it then subtracted 2 lbs for the 6 containers and the box. That was just a guess on my part but I feel that I can not be far off. Maybe I am?

    Having loaded my tires, switched back to empty turfs and now back to loaded tires I guess I would now describe the empty tire ride as too bouncy - say like a 50s Cadillac with shocks that went out 100,000 miles ago. WAY too much spring, but no shocks. This should be no surprise, tractor tires are HUGE air bags.
    By comparison the filled tires are less bouncy, not saying you stay down hard as in a sports car, but the lack of leaping around is generally better.
    By no means is there a "solid wheels" ride, which I think some people expect with filled tires.
    Ifill all 4 of mine 50-95%+ with water depending what Im doing. They feel fine even near brim full. Have to drain em in winter tho. Idont have heated parking. Those empty tires sure make a lot of noise on gravel!
